How to send your transcripts.
At some point during the application process, you will need to request and provide a transcript to your prospective school. Fortunately, Indiana has made this process free and easy. Below are some tips on how to send transcripts.
High School Transcripts
Indiana e-Transcript enables Indiana students to send their high school transcripts electronically to ANY school worldwide. It’s safe, secure, convenient (24/7), and free.

To transfer college credits, you will need to order your transcript through the Registrar’s office at the institution you plan to transfer from.

The Indiana e-Transcript Initiative was developed in 2005 as a partnership between the Indiana Commission for Higher Education (ICHE) and the Indiana Department of Education (IDOE). Indiana was the first state in the Midwest to adopt e-Transcript and other states have followed its lead. HEA 1341, passed by the 2013 Indiana General Assembly, established the e-Transcript initiative by statue and called for a common high school transcript to be developed by the IDOE in collaboration with ICHE. ICHE employs Parchment, Inc., to deliver this electronic transcript-exchange-system service throughout the state. The service is made possible by an appropriation from the General Assembly.
